Fun with fire
« on: February 26, 2013, 09:01:43 PM »
I had some fun with fire one saturday afternoon.


I first poured water into the glass, and added some food coloring as well. I then poured A TON of lighter fluid on top, and lit it. I had an assistant drop an ice cube from outside the frame, and I fired the camera through EOS Utility at the same moment the ice cube hit the water. A lot of trial and error.......

nice image

... but why were you using EOS Utility to trigger that?
no standard remote cable release?..

I'd think the utility and computer might make for some inconsistent delays to estimate.

My cable release was broken at the time, so my only option was EOS Utility. There was no perceptible (to me, anyway) shutter lag, plus the larger screen was helpful for focusing and adjusting composition. I really like EOS Utility, and use it a lot.
